1596 Army Cadets provides essential skills in team building and personal development for youth.  


The basic program is free to join however our corps is involved in many activities and events within and for the community that often requires additional support.  We rely on support from the community and additional sponsorship in order to provide the enhanced program that our cadets have come to enjoy. 


Financial contributions, donations of resources and/or materials, or sponsorship of one of our many teams are needed and appreciated.
